The first stage begins with a hearty gag-out on some Padang style street food as part of the post flight hangover. The resultant catastrophic bowel actions create a high mood for his travelling buddies.

Re: Mentawai quiver.

What was your total AirAsia cost with boards and food ? not exactly sure now, can't find the ticket prices. I think about $900 Did you order the nasi lemak on board? I assume you'll have a day in Padang. Try the nasi Padang at Pagi Sore, that is served in the traditional hidang style. The fried chi...

For comparison, I think KL or Jakarta and tons of other asian towns are also not tourist destinations. Malaca and Panang are OK, once.
Oh but one can make an argument that KL and Jakarta are foodie destinations though one can find much better food north of KL.

Re: Mentawai quiver.

OK so my initial research seems to be correct about pricing. I was told it is about 1200 Rupees (about AUD$10) to hire a tuk tuk for 3 hours to get to a break that is 20 - 30 mins away.

How were the towns were unpleasant? Were you on the east or south west coast, Cranked?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fun session at the local on the late. The banks in front of the pavilion still result in a lot of close outs but the tide was high enough to help things out.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Surfed from 2-4pm. Plenty closeouts then also. But ya know, wait for the right one, pick your line etc. instead of paddling deep you had to position yourself wider as the rip on the rights was running north to south and pretty strong for its size. Too deep you’d just get faded. Some of them had a d...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Wanda. Must have got in after you got out. It started off ok but there were lots of close outs after the first 30 minutes and conditions kept changing. Lots of people on one bank. I only went to the local at low tide this week and there are lots of stretches between the pavilion and the south end th...

Water was in a tee and boardies. No chaffing. Ended the session getting hit by a chick's board. She was quite apologetic about the incident.

Fcuking sunburnt around the eyes today. Heaps of sunscreen. Pleasant but Definitely not worth the burn.
Is it ever worth it?
